1/2 ounce grenadine, preferably homemade
1/4 ounce fresh lemon juice
1/4 ounce Cherry Heering or other cherry liqueur
1 orange twistflamed

Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add the sherry, brandy, grenadine, lemon juice and Cherry Heering and shake well. Strain into an ice-filled rocks glass. Garnish the drink with the flamed twist and the cherry.
